My taxi service summer is finally over! The kids are all back in school, though, so the school taxi service has begun! lol! Caroline is self-sufficient, JD is riding along with her & can walk to work (woot). Nicky, on the other hand, wants to do a lot of after/before school stuff, so I'll be trekking to & from the high school for Orienteering, Aerospace Team, and like 3 other things :/ It wouldn't be so bad if the street wasn't so clogged up with rush hour traffic when it's time to pick him up. Sigh.
We kicked off August at the hair salon - Nicky finally relented to a hair cut, he couldn't stand it anymore after trying to grow it out over the summer. And yes, this is still his "normal" when it comes to photos!
He had one last summer hurrah with his friend Maggie. I took them to The Deep (comic book/gamer store) and then to Toy Box Bistro (our favoritest, and Maggie hadn't been yet). No. I did not eat the whole thing. I doggie bagged it and NICK ate the whole thing lol. It was goooooooooooood.
We had a game night, since I bought new games. You've Got Crabs is hilarious. It's based off an old parlor game (I can't remember off the top of my head, it starts with a K), and it's with teams, so Nick and I took turns playing with the kids. I think the expansion pack will be finding it's way under the Christmas tree this year as well as Bears vs Babies ;) We love the games from The Oatmeal!
Nicky had orientation at school, and JD had his 2nd job interview
Sonic was on the lunch menu a couple of times this month. Popcorn chicken and tots ...
JD's second interview panned out into his first job ever! It's just Little Caesar's but everybody has to start somewhere right? The GM said she liked them fresh out of high school with no work experience because they're "more trainable". Sounds like a deal to me ;) Bonus - it's right around the corner so he can huff it on foot!
After a lot of procrastinating and a lot of cursing and a lot of researching on the Best Buy website, I broke down and bought a new computer - and I'm glad I did! It's bigger than I though it would be, but that's ok. It runs SO much better than my tower did, plus I got a $20 printer out of the deal, lol. After I got them settled in on my desk, the whole family vultured and everybody got a piece of the old set up, lol
Yes, we watched Deadpool... and we watched Avengers Infinity War. I loved both movies - even though Avengers ended the way that it did. SIGH. I can't wait to see how they pull that one around :P
I still haven't cracked open my polymer clay - UGH! Just what the heck. The girl got her license, JD can walk to work (actually prefers it that way) - life is supposed to be easier for me right now!
